We strive to achieve positive community outcomes and earn revenues to support sustainability.
Heartwood House and the Unitarian Universalist Fellowship of Ottawa enjoy a highly successful partnership in the ownership of the property at 400-412 McArthur Avenue. Heartwood owns 87.5% and the Unitarians 12.5% of the building.
Heartwood House is also home to two other successful partnerships: the OC Transpo Lost & Found and the Everybody Wins! Electronics Recycling Program. Income generated is used to help support the work of the Heartwood community.
THE ROOT OF OUR SUCCESS
Heartwood House and its member groups could not survive without volunteer support. Participants from member groups are invited to volunteer at the Heartwood reception desk where they can develop customer service skills, computer abilities, teamwork, and leadership skills.
A SPACE FOR LOCAL ARTISTS
The Foyer Gallery is an excellent space for local artists to display their art. It is also a popular meeting place for Heartwood groups and for other community organizations.
